if the lint screen is located inside behind door, eitehr remove the bottom accesss panel or pop the top(with a screw driver approx 3 inches in from ither side of main top relaes the clips) the lid tips back revealing 2 screws holding front panel to the unit, after removing you will see the filter housing, still mounted by probalby 3-4 screws, remove the housing and retrieve the debris that has fallen down there

next time send the model number,if it's not starting unplug the dryer,on top of the blower wheel housing there will be a thermal fuse,if the filter is on top it's behind the back panel of the dryer,if the filter is inside it's in the front of the dryer,it will be near the duct that the lint filter slides into,you need to remove at least one of the wires before you read it out with a meter,it will be a 3392519 or a 3390719,these are the two most used thermal fuses.let me know what you find,if it is the fuse most likely you need to clean out the dryer.blow out the vent line i use a leaf blower if it's long,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is
could have a blocked vent line,a blocked duct that the lint filter slides into,you should do a clean out on the dryer once a year anyway so this is a good place to start,if the fire is lighting and going out also could be coils or valve but start with clean out
The lint filter is supposed to do the job, but........
1. Remove lint filter.
2. remove 2 screws under lint filter, then pry up both front ends of the front of the top lid.
Lift lid up and prop up but do not go completely vertical.
3. Remove back cover of the machine.
4. Remove all the screws holding the vent shute on the left side.
5. Lift this shute out and up as far as possible, watching out for the wires.
6. Inspect the blower wheel and it's housing with a light. Should be filled with a buidup of lint.
7. Clean out and reassemble.
broken belt......simple fix.......remove lint filter from top 2 screws remove.........insert screwdriver between top & front push down to pop top......1 screw on each side holding front on at top remove them....front will then pick up off the 2 remaining clips at the front bottom.....spin door around to the side belt should be laying in the bottom of the dryer or around the tub but broken.......hope this helps......check back.......
check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse www.repairclinic.com shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.
